NBS News

I love how the makers of the Watchmen movie are using the interwebs to cram in as much as they can from the comic. I can’t imagine something like this appearing in the final film for more than a few seconds. It’s a treat for fans of the original work to see this little bit of exposition in the form of a fictional 1970’s news programme, more or less as I remember it from the page. There’s nothing really being shown here that can’t be shown elsewhere in the film. It’s just nice to see that they are trying to get the adaptation right, as well as paying attention to the period details.

My only complaint is that actors pretending to be news anchors rarely sound convincing.
